Actors Leonardo DiCaprio, Tobey Maguire, and Tom Hardy are teaming up to produce an untitled project that will delve into the world of animal trafficking and poaching for Warner Bros. It isn't known if they plan to act in this drama as well.
Tom Hardy came up with the original idea, based on friends of his who are anti-poaching fighters in South Africa. The story has been compared in scope to Steven Soderbergh's Traffic, which delved into several different aspects of the war on drugs. This story will cover everything from the poachers in the African jungles to the fashion houses in Paris. The producers are currently searching for a screenwriter to tackle this project.
Tom Hardy and Leonardo DiCaprio both starred in Inception for the studio in 2010. Longtime friends Tobey Maguire and Leonardo DiCaprio star in The Great Gatsby for Warner Bros., arriving in theaters next year.
